Bringing the Benefits of Caringo Scale-Out Object Storage to NFS-Based Applications & Workflows

Do you need to securely store and access data via NFSv4, S3, HDFS, and SCSP/HTTP? Do you need to organize millions or billions of files coming from different protocols, distribute data to different locations and easily search all files at once? Caringo® SwarmNFS—the first lightweight file protocol converter to bring the benefits of scale-out object storage to NFSv4, seamlessly integrating files and object storage.

80% Less Resources than Traditional Gateways and Connectors

SwarmNFS Infographic

  • Stateless and lightweight
  • Linux process, appliance or VM-deployable
  • No caching or spooling
  • Parallel data streaming
  • No single point of failure
  • High availability (HA) built in

SwarmNFS streams data from NFSv4 clients directly to and from Caringo Swarm, reducing risk of data loss and the amount of disk, CPU and RAM that is traditionally required for file-to-object gateways.

Easily centralize, distribute, and manage data

Files can be ingested at any site and readily available across the globe via a single mount point. Swarm provides multi-tenancy and enhanced security, including integration with AD, LDAP, and PAM.

Eliminates storage and protocol silos with universal access

With SwarmNFS, you can now write data to a global address space making it portable with multi-protocol read and write to Swarm through any combination of NFSv4, S3, HDFS or SCSP/HTTP.

Eliminates metadata databases

SwarmNFS brings the power of metadata, inherent in Swarm object storage, to all files. With SwarmNFS, metadata can be added to files directly from the client. Annotating files with metadata advances the way files can be searched, organized and analyzed at scale.

Data can be easily centralized or distributed across campus, across country, or across the world.

“What Caringo has done with SwarmNFS is bring the ease of data distribution, retention, and accessibility of object storage within reach of any organization. By seamlessly integrating one of the most pervasive file standards with their metadata approach and search, they have created an incredibly powerful tool chest for application developers to work with large amounts of data.”
